Fodor's Review

This distinctive, slate-blue building with two tiers of graceful arcades recalls the city's mid-19th-century heyday. It was built in 1838 for the wealthy del Junco family and since 1980 has housed a collection of artifacts, photographs, memorabilia and tools—some of them gruesome—chronicling the sugar and slave industries, on which the city's wealth was built. For an extra CUC$5 you can take photos.
